About Kimberly

I am a Virginia Department of Education certified teacher (certified K-12 in Spanish and French). I have 6 years of experience teaching elementary, middle and high school students full time, including in an immersion school. I am an expert in tutoring French and Spanish, and am skilled at helping students understand the ins and outs of language. If your student needs assistance in English, whether as a second or first language, I love to work with these students as well. I am energetic and passionate about language education. I specialize in experiential learning and tailoring to an individual child's needs.
I am a creative, experienced language teacher who is eager to help students understand the "ins" and "outs" of language. I focus on communication, and tailor each lesson to my students' needs. Whether you are trying to improve your performance in a class, or want your very own language course, I can develop lessons that will help you succeed in your language learning goals!

Because of my experience teaching foreign languages, I understand the difficulty of learning a new language or even understanding your native language! I've worked with dozens of students preparing for tests, learning how to write quality essays, and understanding literature. Additionally, I've worked with learners of English on understanding the construct of the English language and accent reduction.

I hold a bachelor's degree in French and have spent the past 6 years teaching French to elementary, middle and high school students. I lived in France and have had several jobs translating and interpreting French.
Additionally, I lived in worked in the Dominican Republic and therefore have an excellent command of the Spanish language. I have classroom experience teaching Spanish to all ages.

Please contact me so we can chat more about your goals. I am here to help you understand language! Can't wait to hear from you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
